Tune in to our radio show on your local public radio station, or sign up for the podcast and listen at your leisure. Here’s what it’s about:
How can we raise healthy children? One place to start is with feeding them right. Simple whole foods, not highly processed white rice cereal, should be our babies’ first taste of the world. Organically grown food may be even more important for growing youngsters than it is for adults. Which foods matter most?
Giving baby a good start may begin right at birth. Most traditional cultures follow a practice that gives newborns the best possible foundation, but in many modern hospitals this simple technique is overlooked. Should it be adopted? How hard would that be? You can learn more about this approach at DrGreene.com or watch Dr. Greene’s TEDxBrussels talk.
